Kazuo Sato was born in Tokyo in 1946, he began studying lutherie in 1965 with the luthier Kuniharu Nobe. He moved to England in 1971 where he built guitars in the David Rubio workshop, stamping his initials "KS" on the internal heel above the label. In 1974 he set up his own workshop in Hekelgem (Belgium), before moving to Saarlouis (Germany) in 1976 where he's remained to this day.
This "Special" model corresponds to its highest concert model. Aesthetically, it is a very beautiful guitar, of great elegance, the rosette is decorated with beautiful tulip mosaics, the whole is of great refinement with selected woods of the best choice. It is a powerful instrument, but the main thing is the lyrical charm and the exceptional quality of the timbre. This poetic musicality is deployed in the space. The basses are round and dense, the notes are flexible, reactive, colourful and expressive. The incredible richness of the sound palette is what makes the instruments of this prestigious luthier so exceptional.
